constructed during the reign of Jayavarman VII (1181-1220)

After hundreds of years, the stones of Ta Prohm ("Grandfather Brahma") and the trees of the forest have become magnificently intertwined, dramatically displaying the continual struggle between the creations of nature and man. Purposely kept in this state by its conservators, visitors to the temple get a glimpse of what 19th century explorers might have seen in coming across the great monuments of Angkor. According to stone inscriptions, Ta Prohm held power over almost 80,000 citizens and was responsible for the administration of 102 hospitals. It was dedicated to King Jayavarman VII's mother in 1186AD.
